Abstract

Food is an important part of everyone’s life. The types of food that you have access to can tell a grandiose tale of your history or heritage. It is a bit more difficult for that tale to be easily told in a place like the United States, simply because of the incredible melting pot of cultures that exist here. There are so many options for hybridized cuisines and certainly more options for “Americanized” cuisines. If more people focused on the similarities to accept the differences of others, I believe that we would be much closer to abolishing the idea of Us versus Them. We could truly understand that just because the world is a big place, it doesn’t mean our neighbors are alien.
